Born and raised in Missouri, child prodigy, Stanford dropout, hopeless romantic and hard-bitten realist, agnostic moralist, determined intellectual, natural dancer, wannabe poet, techie by trade, slick, quick, sensitive, witty, earnest, magnetic, dry, ebullient, eclectic, conflicted, moody but well-meaning, and sometimes kinda spacey.
I was single for way too long, and am finally starting to break out of that. Right now I mostly want to see the world and have some fun.
I used to work for a different startup which is a major force for social justice. That was pretty cool. But as much as I believed in the mission, it wasn't the best fit for my technical abilities for a lot of reasons I could go into. I'm gonna see if I can satisfy my do-gooder urges by doing some pro bono work for other projects on the side.
Other than that, I'm trying to get into better shape and spend more time outside. It's kinda my me project right now. Don't get me wrong, my health is pretty good, but I'd like to aim higher: I don't feel like I've ever been a specimen of robust vigor. If you wanna be hiking/biking/surfing/whatever buddies that'd be just peachy.

Truth be told, I am pitifully read and … music'd … compared to a lot of the people I see on this site. If you can turn me onto new works of art and the mind, I will forever think of you fondly.
